We wish that the Court of Appeal, Fourth District, had better news for our clients, but that was not to be. Although the Court of Appeal agreed with our appellate counsel’s arguments regarding the procedural mistakes that were made by the trial court judge, the Court of Appeal decided to address the merits of the Pueblo Lands issue and its interpretation of the City Charter section 219 at this early stage of the case. In its ruling, the Court of Appeal held, in essence, that the City’s later re-acquired Pueblo Lands–especially those re-acquired after the Federal Government had taken them by eminent domain–were no longer subject to the restrictions of section 219. Here is the Court of Appeal’s opinion.
For more background on what our side’s arguments were, as well as the City and the Landlord’s arguments, here are those key documents: Linda Vista Village SD HOA’s opening brief in the Court of Appeal: Appellant’s Opening Brief; The City of San Diego’s Respondent’s Brief; The Landlord Tecolote’s Respondent’s Brief; and the LVVSDHOA’s Reply Brief.
